The 100 Best Denver Restaurants We Can't Live Without

Pete's Kitchen

Pete's Kitchen
Danielle Lirette
Late-night food is hard to come by in the Mile High these days, and 24-hour joints are even more rare, but the pancake-flipping neon chef above Pete's Kitchen remains a beacon on East Colfax for those who need to sate their hunger in the darkest hours of the night — on weekends, at least, when the eatery keeps the grill hot all day and overnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Owned by the Contos family since 1988 — and bearing the name of patriarch Pete Contos, who passed away in 2019 — Pete's satisfies like no other, whether you're here for a gyros omelet, a burrito smothered in green chile, or just a burger and fries.
